Behind the Trail of Broken Treaties; an Indian declaration of independence by Vine Deloria( Book )

44 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in English and Italian and held by 2,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Indian spokesman calls for the federal government to reopen treaty-making procedures. Originally published in 1974, this book analyzes the history of Indian treaty relations with the United States. Vine Deloria presents population and land ownership information to support his argument that many Indian tribes have more impressive landholdings than some small members of the United Nations. A 2000 study published by the Annual Survey of International and Comparative Law recommends that the United Nations offer membership to the Iroquois, Cherokee, Navajo, and other Indian tribes. Ironically, the study also recommends that smaller tribes band together to form a confederation to seek membership, a suggestion nearly identical to the one the United States made to the Delaware Indians in 1778, and that a presidential commission explore ways to move beyond the Doctrine of Discovery, under which European nations justified their confiscation of Indian lands
American Indian policy in the twentieth century by Vine Deloria( Book )

20 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 2,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until now, books about American Indian Policy have dealt with laws and acts long since adopted and in effect. In "American""Indian Policy ""in ""the Twentieth Century, " edited by Vine Deloria, Jr., a group of writers deals with present realities and future possibilities, taking the lead in encouraging discussion and further research into areas of concern to American Indians.Against the background of the larger field of Indian affairs, these authors suggest new ways of thinking about specific problems: Joyotpaul Chaudhuri -- "American Indian Policy: An Overview"Sharon O'Brien -- "Federal Indian Policies and the International Protection of Human Rights"Fred L. Ragsdale, Jr. -- "The Deception of Geography"Michael Lacy -- "The United States and American Indians: Political Relations"Daniel McCool -- "Indian Voting"Tom Holm -- "The Crisis in Tribal Government"David L. Vinje -- "Cultural Values and Economic Development on Reservations"Robert A. Nelson and Joseph F. Sheley-- "BIA Influence on Indian Self-Determination"Mary Wallace -- "The Supreme Court and Indian Water Rights"John Petoskey -- "Indians and the First Amendment"Vine Deloria, Jr. -- "The Evolution of Federal Indian Policy Making"The articles treat both historical problems and current issues that must be confronted if Indians are to move forward to stabilize their communities and protect their rights and resources. In part speculative, the book defines many of the factors that bear on the formation of policies at the federal level, and it discusses new institutions and legislation that can assist American Indians, enabling tribal members and other individuals to better understand their present status and draw reasonable conclusions about their future. This book will be of interest in several fields of study. History and law classes, short courses on Indian affairs, tribal governments and training programs, and state agencies that deal with Indians will find it of benefit, as well as the general reader interested in the welfare and future of American Indians
